No definite plans yet for this year/summer, but it's on my list and I'm contemplating asking permission from the employer for 4 weeks this summer. When I go, I'd like to do the inside passage cruise too - maybe even ship the bike one way or another to maximize time north.

I'm subscribed...

My ex relocated to Anchorage last Feb and she raved about the cruise...even in winter.

Good Investment



For the first-timer (like me) this guide book appears to be very helpful for trip planning. Well worth the $24.

You might as well jaunt down to key west to start the trip officially and then make sure you reach prudhoe so you can record an official iron butt run. You should check out the iron butt association to check for the qualification.

I signed up for D2D 2013, so I know I will be there on the 21st. Then on to Alaska!
Not sure if I will ride all the way to Prudhoe Bay but if the weather is good and my ride behaves, I most likely will try. It has always been a dream ride for me.
I am definitely open to suggestions from the people that live there or have made the trip previously.
Hello, I live here in Alaska and I've ridden several times down to American even passing through your neck of the woods - what specific questions do you have about comingto the AK?
